Banks normally restrict either the nature or volume of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. Frequent examples of such restriction(s) being that the practice is required to have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some building societies decided to limit the number of conveyancers they allow to represent them. You should note that lenders have no accountability for the accuracy of advice provided by any Burton Joyce solicitor on their approved list. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the culling of solicitor panels in the last decade notwithstanding that there are conflicting views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics via HMLR reveal that thousands of law organisations only carry out one or two conveyances annually.
